Try the Mk1 Cortina club http://www.mk1cortina.co.uk 

Appears that all the "standard" cars had the same struts and pressed steel arms, but the GT and Lotus had cast or forged arms and different struts.  NZ cars should have been assembled from CKD kits of English parts, unless they used Australian CKD kits.

cheers,

my mk1 has cast tca, its only a 1200 deluxe,

so according to uk it should only have pressed tca

just wondering was nz different specs etc

or has someone fitted HD/GT cast tca's etc

 

as the struts i got in uk have pressed tca, i hadnt seen them before, so didnt know what they were

 

thanks

There was a comment on the Cortina site about replacement non-GT cast arms, as the pressed steel ones were prone to rust.
